“The Best in the West”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This is a great cafe, really authentic Italian cafe with friendly welcoming staff.

They have a brilliant selection of sandwiches and other dishes all with a true Italian twist that makes this place stand out from the usual poor attempts at mimicing an Italian atmosphere. If you have a sweet tooth this place may cause you weight gain as the cakes are to die for!

The coffee is fantastic, they pour with Kimbo, a real Italian coffee from Naples that is worth the visit alone.

It is well named as it put a Smile on my face, will defo make this my regular haunt when in the West End.

“An authentic Italian delight.”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This place is a hidden gem. The coffee is of a superior standard and the variety of sandwiches is far above that of any deli in Glasgow.
Real delicious tasting Italian ingredients.
I highly recommend to all.

“The place to be in Glasgow. For food and pop stars!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you love real Italian products, this is a place you should discover in Glasgow.
The service is great, the atmosphere is fantastic.
Take a seat in the smile cafe, close your eyes and jump into real Italy: order an Italian sandwich, enjoy a coffee in front of a wonderful picture of Firenze.
And if you are lucky as I was, you may have the opportunity to share your lunch with Paulo Nutini.
